Heated Glove Liners: recommendations wanted

Heated Glove Liners: recommendations wanted

Fellow cold-weather riders,

Those of you who use heated glove liners: can you make any recommendations as to brands, etc.?

Thanks,
Frosty

Re: Heated Glove Liners: recommendations wanted

Dear Frosty -

Not really my cup of tea and probably a bit over the top, but I did run across these recently:

If you can't find something in here to keep you warm, you should probably take up knitting or something until Spring....or maybe try some pogies.  Or perogies...perogies are very good.

I use BarMitts (http://www.barmitts.com/products.php?page=external). These are neoprene "booties" that slide onto each side of the handlebar. They are available in different sizes and for different bar types. They are fairly easy to install and remove.

Before using these my fingers would get cold even with fairly heavy gloves. Now I can use much lighter gloves (usually just wind resistant covers with wool liners). The downsides are that they limit your hand positions somewhat (can't use the drops with the lightweight gloves) and you have to consciously remember to reinsert your hand (e.g., after making a turn signal).

You should pick a size based on your expected gloves. I suggest a local shop that will let you exchange for a different size if needed.

Bar mitts = pogies.

Lobster mitts keep your hands warm at almost any temperature...almost too warm. They're only a little clumsy but work fine. I pretty much don't wear them anymore as I do pretty much stop riding when it's 20 or so degrees. At 30 heavier bike gloves w/ silk glove liners are what I like. REI's got the silk liners tho I've always had to ask to find them.

Happy trails,

Dan in Parkton

Love the faux quote, Dan. Avoiding household chores? That's easy!

I've been using lobster gloves with Smartwool liners, but sometimes my hands get cold anyway. The slight loss of dexterity is also bothersome.

In the end, I purchased AlphaHeat glove liners with rechargeable 7v batteries. They do make a difference. One still loses dexterity, though.
